If someone came up with a notation system that enabled teenage girls to be able to sing a song just by simply looking at it, well, within a decade or 2 it's use would be global.

There are church communities here where people seriously do not know that the rest of the world uses "unshaped" notes. And with pretty minimal music education, a never-before-seen hymn can have full SATB harmony by the second verse.
